Grain Free Pasta with Italian Sausage

Grain Free Flax Pasta

INGREDIENTS

Sauce

1 28 oz can tomato sauce

1 28 oz can diced tomatoes

1 tbsp fresh basil

1 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp brown sugar

1 tsp red pepper flakes

1 tsp crushed garlic

1 tbsp olive oil

salt & pepper to taste

1 1/2 lb Italian sausage

1/4 cup grated parmigiano (yes. it goes INTO the sauce)

Pasta

2 cups almond flour

1 cup arrowroot starch

1 cup ground golden flax

1/4 tsp xanthan gum (optional)

4 eggs

extra arrowroot for rolling

DIRECTIONS

Sauce: Heat oil and brown sausage (you can remove casings or simply cut into meatball size pieces like I did. Add remaining ingredients. Simmer for several hours. I like to start mine cooking before lunch.

Pasta: 

In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. Make a well in centre and add eggs. Beat eggs with a fork and gradually add in the dry ingredients. You will eventually want to use your hands to form a soft dough. Gently knead until smooth.

Dough can be rolled out, on a liberally dusted surface, to approximately 1/12th of an inch and cut into strips as for spaghetti, linguini, fettucine, ravioli or lasagne. The dough is a little more fragile than regular pasta dough. You will want to avoid rolling it out twice

Drop into boiling water and boil for barely one minute. Strain.

Serve: Top with the Sausage sauce and freshly grated parmigiano cheese

Serves 4-6 as an entree, 8 as a side dish
